Hmm GE seems to be late to the party for sure.Either way they have some nice looking equipment as well as some not so great looking stuff (Top Cam). The more players in the market the best for consumers in general. I personally don't think I would get a GE cam, but I also try out everything somewhere physically before buying it as well. That is unless I have some trusted benches like the one done around here. I still like to get my hands on it first if at all possible. So I also might if it was good or innovative enough in the market space.
